About Us

Enabling Technologies for Networked Applications

Founded by software engineers, since 1984 Distinct Corporation has been a pioneer in the development of innovative network technologies. We were the first company to offer a TCP/IP protocol stack for Windows, the first to make an RPC toolkit for Windows, and again the first to ship a development toolkit of reusable networking components for applications written in C, C++ and Visual Basic. As part of the Windows Socket and RPC Committees, Distinct played a key role in helping define the standards that catapulted the Internet to its present state. Our software components have been widely used by thousands of large and medium size companies to create custom Intranet applications for use within their organizations, including many Fortune 100 corporations.

Today Distinct remains focused on supporting its many Internet and Intranet development tools for software professionals while working on new innovative state of the art projects. Our reusable communication protocol modules are being used as key components in many legacy and newer applications. The fact that some of our multiple award winning products dating back to the 90s are still in use today confirms what developers have known from the start – Distinct’s products are rock solid and ready to roll.

Our Mission

While we remain committed to helping fellow developers develop, debug and deploy their Internet and Intranet applications using our robust and market tested components, Distinct’s new initiatives are UX focused applications for the corporate and small business markets.
